Contextualization: How to Translate the Message Without Changing It – A Conversation with Benjamin Morrison Discussing Ministry in Eastern Europe

By August 19, 2021No Comments

In this episode Nick Cady sits down with Benjamin Morrison, pastor of Calvary Chapel Svitlovodsk, Ukraine, as well as the coordinator for City to City Ukraine and a member of the leadership of City to City Europe, to discussion cross-cultural ministry and the topic of contextualization.

When we “contextualize” the gospel, or any other biblical message, do we run the risk of changing it? What is the goal and purpose of contextualization, and how can we be sure that we are doing it well, without watering down the message on the one hand, nor adding unbiblical elements on the other?

In this episode Ben and I share stories from our experiences in Eastern Europe, where I served for 10 years in Hungary, and where Ben has served for 19 years in Ukraine.
